Re: N/S Your take on the XFL

Good action in the games I saw today. I like the Fox broadcasts more, they tend to stick to the football. ABC/ESPN was a little too much with the live mics and chronic interviews trying to turn it into a reality show.

That is a yearly number so I would say the potential pool of players is much larger.

Re: N/S Your take on the XFL

I have liked what I have seen so far. It is not NFL level, which wasn't to be expected, but comparable to mid level FBS. I Think the Product will improve and I'm pretty sure there will be a bunch of XFL players getting a shot in camps this summer.

I watched it Sunday. It's football and I don't watch the NFL anymore so I was excited. There were some decent plays....enough to keep me tuned in.

Watched the Renegades vs LA …

Landry Jones is a INT or pick 6 waiting to happen. Easy to see why he's no longer in the NFL.

Re: N/S Your take on the XFL

I’m trying to support it whenever I can watch.

The NFL needs competition, and even if they play fair right now, I’d hope that they could one day bring some fun back to professional football.

I like being able to go for 1, 2, or 3 extra points...brings a lot more drama if there’s a tight game

Re: N/S Your take on the XFL

Makes the off-season a little shorter for me. Love the kick off and the extra points bonus but the QB play is atrocious has to improve

I doubt it will improve much, ST. The top XFL QB's are players that couldn't make an NFL roster as a backup or practice squad player, not to mention a starting role in the CFL. I expect that defenses will begin to outpace the QB's as the season progresses.
